Sheep and goats are farmed throughout the world for meat, fibre, milk and leather. These small ruminants are very susceptible to external parasites, which has significant implications for their health and welfare as well as the quality and value of the end products for which they are farmed. This book gives practical guidance on preventing and controlling ectoparasites that contribute to disease and infection in sheep and goats, discussing types of parasites, the diseases they cause and what methods of control are available, as well as wider implications such as animal welfare and environmental impacts.... E4 is known to cause resistance to a wide range of ectoparasiticides in the peach-potato aphid (Myzus persicae) (Devonshire and Moores, 1984). Techniques have been developed to investigate total esterase activity using the whole homogenate of a single aphid ...
